welcome to sparkle...

Hi! We’re Sparkle, a charity that helps children and young people from Gwent with a disability and/or developmental difficulty.

Life isn’t easy for some of these children, or their families, which is why Sparkle raises money through donations and grants to fund services, staff and equipment at the Serennu Children’s Centre in Newport where we’re based.

You can find out more information about the charity and what we do here
